My Invisibility Switch (Prompt: Revelation)

I possess the ability
to make myself invisible
at will.

I can disappear
if there are chores to be done,
or when solitude is preferred,

and I can re-materialize
when I need help with heavy lifting
or when I’m feeling especially lonesome.

Unlike the magician,
I’ll reveal my secret:

the default value for
my invisibility switch
is always “ON”

it’s only when
I do something
designed with an
audience in mind,
any audience,

that I’m actually switching it
“OFF”.

So,
I can make myself
invisible at will

as long as I
do not will
myself
to perform
for anyone.

Ta-da.

  1. Ah yes, performing for audience is a different thing completely. I haven't done this in a while.
